In this video I am showing how to install a mainspring into a watch barrel using Bergeon mainspring winders.

I can safely say that , in however long I have remaining , I will never need to install a mainspring into a watch barrel .
The closest I might get is to toss an empty Poland Spring into a trash barrel.
